Before starting Beyond Buckskin, Jessica attended Dartmouth College and then received a Master’s and Ph.D at the University of Arizona. Her dissertation focused on Native American fashion designers since the 1950s.




Jessica’s academic research prompted the creation of her blog and ultimately the Beyond Buckskin Boutique.
